Some stories just have to be shared with others.
This one is just pure fun.
Leah Church, a guard for the North Carolina Tar Heels women’s basketball team, has taken her shooting abilities to the next level.
Last year during her sophomore season, she shot 38 percent from the three-point line, as Fox News pointed out in a piece.
But this latest accomplishment is different.
Church, a junior this year, has now gone viral after she sunk three consecutive long three-point baskets while shooting over her head with her back to the basket.
Her video, posted on Twitter on Saturday, has been viewed more than a million times as of Wednesday afternoon.
Church is from Purlear, North Carolina. She told the Associated Press she was trying to make at least two baskets in a row in the driveway of her family’s home.
She asked her mom to take video of her just in case she made the shots.
Good thing, too.

“I was just going to post it on my Instagram account because I sometimes post just little trick-shot things or shooting,” she said.
“Then when it does take off, it’s kind of neat.”
This is “not the first time Church has been in the spotlight,” reported Fox News. “She went viral for making 120 three-point shots in five minutes in 2015 and 55 consecutive three-point shots in 2016.”
